What gives you energy

Lack of energy, chronic fatigue, lethargy – it seems that these problems affect everyone. Why is this happening? Are we able to live in such a way that we never lack energy? These are questions bothering more and more people. The answer seems simple, but is it like that?

The energy in the context of nutrition
The characteristic feature of modern society is living in the momentum. We are racing for a career, personal development, mental development. To achieve satisfaction, we often have to sacrifice many things, especially time. The lack of time syndrome seems to be an inseparable part of life. Increasingly, it is associated with poor quality of food. We want to eat mainly fast, but does it mean well soon? Unfortunately, more and more often, this is one of the basic factors responsible for the lack of energy. It seems that in addition to sleep control, nutrition is a key element to prevent the formation of chronic fatigue syndrome.


Herbal Energy

The energetic demand of an organism is defined as the amount of energy that should be delivered to the body along with food, to cover energy expenses related to metabolism and physical activity. Energy, which is most often expressed in kilocalories, results mainly from the content of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats in food. It is necessary for the work of organs, breathing, maintaining constant body temperature, as well as for everyday human functioning. Therefore, a longer-lasting shortage of energy about the body’s needs may result in the appearance of weakness and fatigue.

The body’s energy needs – how to calculate them
The fact that we need food to have energy in everyday life is clear, but does each of us need it the same? Of course not. The amount of food and the amount of energy delivered with food should be individually matched to the needs of each of us, taking into account the age, height, sex, and level of physical activity. How to determine your energy demand? We should start by calculating how much our basic metabolic rate is, i.e. the amount of energy necessary for proper bodywork, in short PPM. To calculate it, we can use the formulas. Below is an example of Harris and Benedict’s modified version.

Pattern for PPM for a man
PPM kcal = 88,362 + 13,397 × M (kg) + 4,799 × W (cm) – 5,677 × L (years)

Pattern for PPM for women
PPM kcal = 447,593 + 9,247 × M (kg) + 3,098 × W (cm) – 4,33 × L (years)

M – current total body mass in kg,
W – height expressed in cm,
L – age expressed in years.

Then, calculate the total energy demand of the body (CPM), that is, the amount of energy that is necessary for everyday activities such as cleaning teeth or going to training. To calculate it, the resulting number of PPMs should be multiplied by the rate of physical activity
– 1,2 – a person lying in bed,
– 1.25 – an office worker with very low physical activity related only to household duties,
– 1.5 – an office worker training about 3 times a week for at least one hour,
– 1.75 – an office worker training extensively 3-4 times a week for at least one hour,
– 2.0 – professional athlete training at least 6 hours a week or a person working very hard physically.

Thanks to the above calculation, we can determine your real energy demand and adapt our diet to it. In everyday life, it may seem very difficult, but it is enough to read the labels of products. They always include the number of kilocalories that the food item provides.

However, if you do not find the time, it is worth following the following guidelines
– the optimal number of meals during the day is 4-6;
– meals should be consumed every 3-4 hours, thanks to which our body will have access to nutrients all the time;
– breakfast should be eaten up to an hour after waking up, in this way we will provide the body with the necessary ingredients as soon as possible;
– the last meal should be consumed about 2-3 hours before bedtime;
– when choosing food products, we should be guided by the pyramid of healthy nutrition. It indicates which nutrients should be included in our diet more often and which less frequently.

Ubiquinol – new, highly bioavailable coenzyme Q10 form!

After years of studies and looking for innovations, finally managed to develop bioactive, and highly bioavailable form of coenzyme Q10 – ubiquinol. This unique form is even 8-times more absorbed in our organism, than typical coenzyme Q10

What is coenzyme Q10?

Coenzyme Q10 (also called ubichinone), is an organic vitamin-like substance, which is naturally produced in most of living organismes. It’s second name – ubichinone – means, that is very common in every organism structure. Coenzyme Q10 plays very imporant role in energy production inside our organism. The reason for this, is that coenzyme is basic component of mitochondria, where it take part in fats and carbohydratesmetabolism, and  cell membrane. It’s also used in some enzymatic processes, where it take part in ATP creation, and energy transfer between cells. In short way – your organism couldn’t do anything without coenzyme Q10.



What are benefits of supplementing coenzyme Q10?


Ubiquinol 200mg

Why coenzyme should be considered for supplementation, for everyone in their thirties?

Coenzyme Q10 is necessary for proper fats and carbohydrates conersion to energy, but natural production of coenzyme is highly decreased with age. When your body have proper amounts of coenzyme in mitochondria, they can be much more effective in whole body.

Coenzyme Q10 is also strong antioxidant. It is protecting proteins, fats and DNA of mitochondria from oxidation, and it supports overall mitochondrial actions.



Why ubiquinol, and not ubichinone?

Supplementation of highly bioavailable ubiquinol is highly recommended if:

–if you have 30 years old, or more

– If you suffer from diabetes or liver diseases

– You suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome

– You take >10mg of statins

– If you supplement >150mg of ubichinone

Ubiquinon is over 8-times more bioavailable than ubichinone

What does it even mean?

Ubchinone, not only that is poorly absorbed in bloodstream, but it also need to be converted to ubiquinol then. That’s because ubiquinol is only form, which can be effective used by our organism. As it can be seen, it’s very complicated and long process.

Because ubiquinol is already active form of coenzyme Q10, it’s fastly absorbed in bloodstream, because there is no “brake” in form of need of conversion one substance to another before absorption. It’s absorbed more easily, and it stays in bloodstream longer.
